Biographical Information[edit]

Dooing making a barehanded (raw) catch

In a 1936 interview in The Sporting News, Red Dooin claimed he was the first catcher in the majors to use shin guards. He claimed he wore them under his stockings. The shin guards, made of rattan, were designed by Mike Murphy, famous University of Pennsylvania athletic trainer.

He umpired one National League game in 1904. After his playing career ended, he coached for the New York Giants. He also was a vaudeville singer and actor and later sang on the radio; he was noted for his baritone voice.

As of 2007, Dooin is tied for 6th in the modern era with Frankie Hayes with 139 passed balls.
